Abstract:In laboratory studies in 1964 and 1965 with adult Drosophila melanogaster Meigen untreated males showed no mating preference between untreated and treated (irradiated) females, the reproductive potential was suppressed more by introduction of treated males into a population than by introduction of treated females, and suppression of reproduction in a population was about the same when treated males and females or treated males only were introduced.
